Spilling Sin

Again. Really, AGAIN?
The ugliness of my own sin makes me cringe to admit that it happens not so often
I watched them, those words of sin,
spilling from my wretched mouth.
Nearly as soon as they came tumbling out
 I longed to shove them back in.
To swallow them hard and to choke on them
if that's what it takes.
Lord, help me be a women of few words.
Help me season them with mercy and grace.
"Words from the mouth of a wise man are gracious,
while the lips of a fool consume him."
Ecclesiastes 10:12
